Along those same lines, I feel like it can be less intimidating for a tutor to be observed by a peer than by the supervisor, and job evaluations are scary for everyone, especially young people who may be in their first job.  I’m working on training some of my level 3 tutors to do peer observations.  My goal is to have them do the initial observation of returning tutors and then I will do an observation at a later time.  I am also working on having them work with new tutors to give constructive feedback about their first few sessions.

What about spending some or all of that time to train your Level III tutors how to train or mentor other tutors?  Whether they present a training session or serve as a mentor, both experiences look good on a resume and may help tutors see a future in a job as a learning center manager.  Both opportunities also grant credibility and promotion within your staff as tutors gain more experience and become increasingly valuable employees.

I have a beginning of semester training/meeting for Level III tutors to knock out some of their trng hour requirements.  I wanted to know if anyone has any special activities or ideas for that day’s events.  I try to make it 3 hours and then do the rest of the training later for them.  This is only my second year doing this for just Level III people so I welcome all ideas.

Thanks, all.  I love this listserv, so useful.
